IT was vain to imag^ne fchat the Gaelic Language 
could take and hold the place which was its due 
in the Schools of the Scottish Highlands with- 
out a graded series of Elementary Reading Books, 
supplemented by a cheap and handy Vocabulary of 
the words used in those books. The want of graded 
books has been so far met by " An Treòraiche," " An 
Comh-threòraiche," and " Compauach na cloinne," 
already published and in use ; and now the present 
book is offered to meet the other want. 

"Am Briathrachan Beag" is much more than a 

Vocabulary ser\ing the above-mentioned books, how- 

ever. It contains words which occur in the foUowing 

Popular Historical Sketches, namely : "Rob Roy," 

H^"William Wallace," and "John Knox," written by 

the well-known Lachlan Maclean— or " Lachann na 

Gàidhlig," as he was familiarly called — a master of 

uncorrupted Gaelic idiom ; and also many other words 

of common use which are not in the aforesaid books. 

AHI Much matter has been appended to the Vocabulary 

^^ proper, not as a substitute for a gramraar, but mainly 

Ias a compendium from which writers of Gaelic — who, 
as a rule, are in great need of guidance in the 


technicalities of Gaelic literary work— raay derive in- 
formatiou in cases ol doubt or want of knowledge. 

In the Vocabulary proper, all words are in the 
first instance catalogued in their primar>' fonn ; while 
many are given in their inflected forms and reference 
made to their primar>' form. The principal inflections 
of nouns, and odd inflections of verbs and adjectives, 
are given after the primary forms of the words ; and 
inflections which are awanting there are made up for 
by notes and tables in the appendix. 

One of the great drawbacks to the increase of 
Gaelic literary output has been, and is, ignorance of 
the proper manner in which to prepare and carry 
through Writing for the Press ; and an attenipt is 
made to remove some of that ignorance by instructions 
in the preparation of "copy," in the methods of 
correcting proofs, and in other matters in which 
writers of Gaelic usually fail to reach a reasonable 
standard of technique.

The letters ■# sbould not be u^ to rcpre.<«ent the aliort aonnd <A thc 

vowel ao written. See tStfiMd and others above. 
The letters èi should not be used to represent the long soond of tho 

vowel wrìtten oa. Sce driacbd above. 




'wel letters representing vowels which are invariably long, have no 
need of duration marks. Therefore, it is wrong to write : cèum, 
bèul, gàoth or gaòth. flal or fiàl. 

Becanse duration marks are aolely for the purpose of indicating long 
vowels, it is wTong to place them above vowels which may not be 
classed as long, as : tòm, fònn, màll, lànn, glinn, for : tom, etc. It 
is wTong also to use them to indicate accented syllables, as : gràd 
or gràd, for : grad. Accent marks must not be confounded with 
duration marks, and must not be placed over vowels, but at the end 
of syllables, thus : ead'-ar, sannt'-ach, fa-dheòidh'. 

It is unnecessary to write duration marks over vowels which precede 
double consonants not of the same name, because they are, as a rule, 
long, as : mànran, sònruichte, fòghlum, fòghnaidh', còmhnuidh ; 
or diphthongal as : samhradh, dannsadh, ionnsuidh, leabhraichean, 
feadhna. The practice of putting duration marks on long vowels 
before double consonants might, without appreciable loss of lucidity 
be discarded. 


19 wTong to use the Dative Plural of nouns for the Nominative Plural, 
as : dh' fhalbb na fearaibh, except in verse, when a snappy syllable 
is wanted to answer, and rhyme with, another such. 


It is wrong to write t for am, as : a fear for am fear ; to write a for an, 
as : anns a' sgoil for anns an sgoil ; to wrìte na for nan, as : eachd- 
raidh na sean Ghaidheal, for : nan s«an etc.

initial consonant of the word following them, aa : mo cL 

The Poas. Pronoun t (hia) is usually elided bcforc initial Towil 

aad fh. 


The Poss. Pronoan io hardens to an original t before, and enters 
into composition with, initial vowels and fb, as : t' òran, your song. 

The Poss. pronoun a (her) takes h- between itself and initial vowels, as 
: a h-aodann, her f ace. 

The Poss. pronoun me, enters into composition with words following 
it, when they begin with a vowel or fh, as : m' òran, my song. 

The Poss. prononns ar and bhur, ur, take n- between themselves and 
initial vowels, as : ar u-athair, our father ; bbur n-aran, your bread. 
The n was originally part of the prou. and might be writteu : arn, 
and : bhum, um. 

The emphatic postfix is used in cases such as those which call for em- 
phasis on the English pron. ; or when there is the slightest intentiun 
of singling out or distinguishing, as, you and I : mise 's thusa (never 
thu is mi) ; when / go : nuair a thèid mise ; but when I go out : 
uuair a theid mi am mach. 

The elided a (his) has its absence usually indicated by an apostrophe, as 
: 'aran = a aran, his brcad : 'fhacai=a fhacal, his word. While this 
:nay be admitted as useful, although not absolutely necessary, there 
:s no need of the apostrophe when the postfix foUows the noun, as 
: aran-san, his bread : fhacal-san, his word. 

The emphatic postfix follo\(-s the adjcctive when there is one, as : mo 
chù-aa, my dog ; but : mo chù ban luath-sa, my swift white dog.
